Thread: Noise Pollution and Aircraft Camping

  1. #1

    Angry Noise Pollution and Aircraft Camping

    Is it just me or is impossible to get any sleep if youÂ’re camping next to your airplane due to the never ending karaoke and debauchery occurring just off site at the beer tent or any of the random houses just outside the fences? ItÂ’s currently 2330L and the concert is still pounding away back there.

    EDIT: I don’t want to be the cause of more restrictions placed on someone’s enjoyment during AV week. This thread has been a learning experience for me, I will be bringing ear plugs every year now, problem solved.

    We had the same awful experience in homebuilt camping in 2019. Rather than hope for a miracle, my wife and I got some decent earplugs and made the best of it.

    When I tell folks that every year I stay at a motel that is 50 miles away from Oshkosh cuz it's affordable, they often tell me it would be easier if I camped. I always reply "No thanks", the last campground I stayed in was called Vietnam and that satisfied any desires to sleep outdoors for me.

    More on topic, those inexpensive soft foam ear plugs are wonderful things. Great noise reduction and actually quite comfortable.

    People talking loud, ports potty doors slamming all night, traffic on the perimeter road…

    Bring earplugs and sleep in ‘em. That’s what I’ve been doing for decades.

    I thought for a minute you were talking about the Sturgis experience. Then I see I'm perusing the EAA forum.

    I figured Sunday night I could go to bed early.....nope, not happening. Layed on my cot wide awake becasue of what was going on at the Theater in the Woods (and why do thay call it a "theater" anyway?) and the Fly-In Theater that went on and on until 11:30. Really?? I guess I'm just getting old and cranky.
